Photographer David Hurn has been studying the metamorphosis in Wales, the ‘land of his father’, over a period of twenty years. His carefully observed photographs reveal both the traditional and the modern sides of the country. The strength of Welsh culture and history is represented by images of mine-workers with their pit-ponies, day-trippers on the beach, sheepdog trials and horse fairs, brass bands, traditional singers, and the chapel. Alongside these are modern developments: Japanese factories producing microprocessors and computer products, hamburger stands, discos – even male strippers.
